The EMAP project (Erasmus Mundus Active Participation) was a common initiative of several Erasmus Mundus National Structures and aimed to enhance the participation of higher education institutions in the Erasmus Mundus Action 1: Joint Programmes. The project was carried out in two phases from October 2009 until September 2012 and financed by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus programme.


In the course of the EMAP project the project partners identified and selected consortia of higher education institutions as potential applicants for new Erasmus Mundus joint Master and Doctoral programmes, and organized training seminars in order to help them to prepare good quality proposals. Representatives of successful Erasmus Mundus joint programmes were invited to these seminars in order to share their experience with various aspects of implementing the joint study programmes. The training and guidance materials from the EMAP training seminars are now available for public at this website.

The EMAP project also intended to contribute to the capacity building and networking of participating Erasmus Mundus National Structures. For this purpose the partners organised training sessions for participating Erasmus Mundus National Structures focused on the issues of common interest.
